morning america. >> one of the right things he did was treat this as a war on terror. we had no domestic attacks under bush. we've had one under obama. >> there was the matter of 9/11. now, the mayor, former mayor apologized for that misstatement. and stephanopoulos blogged his apology saying i should have pressed him on the misstatement. it was my mistake. that's one everyone jumped on. >> i think the media is largely self-correcting, but i like the idea of having maybe a producer go through and go through the transcript and make sure everything was on the up and up and posting something if it wasn't. but i have to say some fact checks are not checking facts. number one example was the associate the press did a fact check of sarah palin's book and one of the things was in the book she writes i'm driven by principle rather than ambition. they say she's wrong because writing the book proves she's ambitious. >> when rudy made that misstatement, and it's not just 9/11, there was the shoebomber and anthrax attacks, msnbc was all over it. on friday when i watched some of the fox opinion shows
